About Kathleen & John McKaveney
I am a native San Diegan, and a native of Mission Hills. In my opinion, there is no better neighborhood to live. It is extremely safe, and the properties within the neighborhood are all unique and many have historic designations. I have traveled extensively through United States, Europe and Central America. I have utilized the services of VRBO and I understand what travelers need. I love San Diego, and hope that I can introduce you to all of the many attractions, plus some of my favorite restaurants and shops.
Kathleen & John McKaveney purchased this Apartment in 1988
Why Kathleen & John McKaveney chose Mission Hills
Mission Hills is surrounded by many gorgeous canyons. We love this property because it is nestled on the canyon floor. It is peaceful and quiet and the perfect vacation sanctuary.When you are in the apartment you feel like to have escaped from the hustle and bustle of the city, yet within minutes you can drive to all of the major attractions.
What makes this Apartment unique
The unique benefits of this property are: A large floor plan- it easily accommodates 4 people. I designed it for a family of 5 or a couple. Gorgeous canyon views, 100 year old Eucalyptus trees, birds, peace and seclusion. Walking distance to restaurants and stores, easy driving to all the major attractions and beaches.

Kathleen and John are great hosts. There are several steps to climb to street level, but they are lighted and there is a handrail, and several flower pots. I mention this because I am 81 and had no trouble at all negotiating them. The apartment is large with a kitchen that has everything anyone could want. There is a king size bed plus an enormous shower, wifi throughout, tv, etc. All said it was a perfect place for me. Excellent restaurants are within four or five blocks as well as MTS bus stops - an easy walk. I used Uber which is available very quickly. Overall it was an excellent stay, and the hosts were extremely helpful as needed.
Thank You Bob! You were such a nice tenant! We enjoyed meeting and talking to you. We are so happy you enjoyed your stay in the apartment! Come back anytime 😀
Great quiet place for a getaway!
This is a beautiful property that is located in a quiet section of San Diego that was perfectly located for us during our stay for SDCC. The area was quiet the entire time we were there and Kathleen was eager to help us with anything we needed. We will definitely try to stay here again in the future!
Thanks Travis! I’m so glad we were a part of your first time to San Diego! I just found the beautiful sketch you left. You are so talented! Thank you for staying with us!
What a lovely spot. Peaceful yet in the heart of everything.
My sentiments exactly Tamara! Thank you!
Spacious apartment with pretty view of the canyon
The location is perfect for exploring San Diego. We would definitely stay there again.
Thanks Mary! My favorite part is that view too! Come back anytime!

Central private green oasis with generous host
We loved our stay at Falcon's Nest from the moment we arrived to Kathleen's warm welcome. The apartment is bright and open with a fantastic view of the canyon. It is central to shopping, restaurants and public transit in a lovely historic neighbourhood. The apartment itself is super clean, well equipped and a joy to spend time in. We especially enjoyed sunny mornings on the patio and relaxing in the stylish indoors in the evenings after a busy day in the city. The host was available (just a text away) but respected our privacy and kindly offered to pick up anything that would add to our stay. Kathleen is a true ambassador to the city she clearly loves. Her enthusiasm, generosity and goodwill were so very appreciated by us. Highly recommended!
Thank you SO much Susan & Randy! I love SD and Mission Hills! Thanks for leaving the apartment spotless, and I forgot to mention how much we enjoyed the acoustic guitar! Safe travels!
Instaworthy! Location Decor +Service= First Class
I have stayed in many VRBO apartments, condos and houses all over the world. I have to say, this VRBO apartment sets the bar high. The bed was amazing! Comfortable and large (King). The apartment has a "New York loft " kind of feel..wide open floor plan and the large gourmet kitchen! Wow! Everything is new..all the appliances, pans, dishes and of high quality. The front is all windows looking into the canyon. You feel very private. The owners are always available should you need anything. I enjoyed the small unexpected details. ..a bottle of wine in the fridge for my enjoyment upon arrival, along with a few eggs and cheese, milk, coffee. ( I arrived very late from an International flight and she was so kind as to ask me if I wanted her to do a little shopping so I had breakfast the next morning!) Shops , restaurants, yoga and a 24-hour gym in walking distance. Scooters for rent 2 blocks away on most corners of the main street. I am a single woman I felt very safe at all times.
As I mentioned before the bar has been raised! I will come back and stay again at this lovely retreat! I highly recommend a long stay at this Mission Hills apartment!
Thank You Sheila! I really enjoyed meeting you and hearing about all your travels. You are an amazing lady! Please come back anytime, it was our pleasure!

Mission Hills is an upscale, affluent, historic neighborhood located approximately 2 miles north of downtown San Diego. Overlooking San Diego Bay and Old Town (San Diego's oldest settled area, and the site of the first European settlement in present day California), Mission Hills is primarily residential, with a central "Village", that encompasses many upscale restaurants, boutique shops, and businesses. It is a highly desirable place to live given it's close proximity to Balboa Park & SD Zoo (2. miles), Sea World (5 miles), Coronado (7 miles), La Jolla (9 miles) and all of its world famous beaches (6-9 miles)
